virtual visit with your doctor, superhigh resolution experience where your doctor is able to diagnose in real time some of your vital signs, if you have a lesion on your skin he can view that with precision and provide a diagnosis on the spot. that is one of the high-end applications, as we call it. or things like virtual reality and augmented reality. it blows my mind we are thinking about these things. but in the future, it's not inconceivable that we may be able to learn -- and the temperature can't go above a certain temperature. to use a small sensor that uses 5g spectrum to send information back to the network, i can really improve productivity. i use the example of
agriculture, in an agricultural state. in the last few months alone i have been in charles city virginia. i have seen the potential of this technology. the notion that agriculture and technology are two different things are entirely wrong. they are using technology -- which needs water and which doesn't. using drones in real-time, where pets are in the field. 5g has application in rural areas. that's before we used other technologies, artificial intelligence, block chain and the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray, merciful god, we give you thanks for giving us another day. in this 17th year of post-9/11,
we pray that the children of this generation and their children's children may never have to experience another day like the one that flooded our tv screen so many years ago. less those who mourn still those who were lost and continue to bless all first responders whose work continues into future times of stress and need. protect and guide this nation to a new security built upon human integrity and communal solidarity with all who love freedom and human dignity while respecting the lives and beliefs of others. empower the members of congress and governments around the world to establish just laws and seek the common good that will lead to ways of equity and peace. may all that is done this day be for your greater honor and
glory. amen. the eaker pro tempore: chair has examined the journal of the last day's proceedings and announces to the house his approval thereof. pursuant to clause 1 of rule 1, the journal stands approved. the pledge of allegiance will be led by the gentleman from idaho, mr. simpson. mr. simpson: please join me in pledging allegiance. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. the eaker pro tempore: chair lays before the house a communication. the honorable the speaker, house of representatives, sir, one of my guiding principles during my tenure in congress has been to protect the taxpayers that i represent. this is why my first days in office i rejected my congressional pension, turned
down the health care subsidy for members of congress, and fought against a congressional pay raise. i believe members of congress should not be treated any differently than those they govern. i've done my best to live these principles. i refuse my pay during government shutdowns and have slept in my office to cut cost and be a more effective legislator. during my time in congress we've been able to accomplish great things. i've had the honor to lead on important issues such as eliminating the sexual harassment slush fund for members of congress, increasing protections for sexual assault victims in the military, and getting the pause act to the floor which will provided much needed help for service members dealing with posttraumatic stress. i've been proud to play a significant role in helping pass one of the largest tax cuts in our country's history and moving the u.s. embassy in israel to jerusalem. as a republican nominee for governor of florida, it is clear to me that i will likely
miss the vast majority of our remaining session days for this congress. under these circumstances, it would be inappropriate for me to accept a salary. in order to honor my principles and protect the taxpayers, i officially resign from the house of representatives effective immediately. for purposes of pay, i ask that my resignation be retroactive to september 1 so i do not receive any pay for the month of september. this is not a decision i make likely. it has been an honor to serve the people of florida's sixth congressional district and i look forward to serving them and the rest of florida as our state's next governor. respectfully, ron desantis. the speaker pro tempore: under clause 5-d of rule 20, the chair announces to the house that in light of the resignation of the gentleman from florida, mr. desantis, the whole number of the house is 429.
the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from idaho seek recognition? mr. simpson: mr. speaker, pursuant to clause 7 of rule 22, i present a privileged report. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title. the clerk: report to accompany h.r. 5895, a bill making appropriations for the energy and water development and related agencies for the fiscal year ending september 30, 2019, and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: ordered printed. for what purpose does the gentleman from idaho seek recognition? mr. simpson: mr. speaker, i move that the house do now adjourn. the speaker pro tempore: the question is on the motion to adjourn. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no.
